Reasons to visit the United States of America
The United States of America is made up of 50 states plus Washington D.C. (not to be confused with Washington state!). Think of each state as independent territories with their own culture, lingo, history, laws, local government and taxes.
Covering 3.5 million square miles, the USA provides a wealth of geological diversity, from the Rocky Mountains and Great Plains to the volcanic peaks of Hawaii and the frozen tundra of Alaska. Its borders touch the vast Pacific and Atlantic Oceans as well as Canada and Mexico.
Beneath big open skies, the United States boasts beautiful beaches, lofty snow-capped peaks, mighty rivers, giant redwoods, awesome geysers, the Grand Canyon, red-rock deserts and stunning coastlines. The best-of-the-best are protected within 422 national parks and 6,600 state parks. They deliver an unrivalled diversity of mind-blowing sights, awesome adventures, unforgettable experiences and incredible wildlife encounters.
In contrast, U.S. cities provide a plethora of unique man-made experiences, from Las Vegas casinos, New Orleans jazz and New York shopping and dining to Florida's fabulous theme parks and world-class resorts.
For intrepid travelers, the USA provides a lifetime of destinations with something for all ages, interests and budgets. So let's get started - time's running out!
